found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
3/06/09: Scrappy is in desperate need for funding for eye surgery. This is the latest from his foster mom:
"Scrappy is the sweetest dog! We believe him to be a 2-3 year old schnauzer/poodle mix. He is housetrained, great with kids and absolutely LOVES to go for rides in the car! He would love nothing more than to be adopted by a family where he can receive the love and attention he deserves.
Sadly, Scrappy was diagnosed with a genetic eye condition. He was born without tear glands. This went untreated for so long in his previous “home” that he has lost all vision in his right eye and part of the vision in the left. It is only a matter of time before he will go completely blind. We were thrilled to hear that there is a surgery available to help Scrappy and save his vision, but it is very expensive. The cost for the procedure (the doctor will route part of his salivary gland to his left eye and remove the non-functioning right eye) is 1800.00.
We know it is a lot of money, but Scrappy so deserves a chance at a good life. He has had such a rough start, but still manages to wag his tail and jump up in his foster mom’s arms for kisses. He also stands patiently while his eyes are treated several times a day with drops to help keep him comfortable. He is so grateful to finally have someone to take care of him! Please consider donating to Scrappy’s surgery fund. It really is his only hope…. "

11/22/08: Scrappy Doo has finally found a foster home thanks to Julie and Glenn! He is such a doll (as you can see from the pictures). He stayed in another foster home last night until we could take him to Julie and Glenn's house. He was a wonderful house guest. He slept all night on his doggy bed and even scratched at the door in the morning to tell them he had to do his business (we'll let you know if he is potty trained as soon as we know). Scrappy Doo does want to be around people though. He is perfectly content to sleep on the couch while his family is in the room (which he is doing right now as we write). He probably would prefer a family where someone is home to give him the attention he deserves.
So far he has gotten along with every dog he encounters. He's basically just an all around great little dog!
It turns out that Scrappy Doo's eyes do not make tears on their own, so he needs "artificial doggy tears" twice daily. His eyes should clear up real soon (right now he has some discharge because they are infected). It really isn't a big deal though...just a little strip of ointment in each eye and he'll be good to go! Won't you please consider adopting this cutie!
10/17/08: This is Scrappy Doo! He is about 2-3 years old if we had to guess. He was found a stray in a local neighborhood. He apparently wandered up to someone's doorstep. This poor little guy needs some work, but he is absolutely as sweet as can be.
